Part One Of “The Catholic View of Judaism” Series

Saint Hippolytus was born in 170 A.D in Rome, Italy and became a Catholic priest and scholar.

He is recognized as an Early Church Father for his influence on the Catholic religion. In his writing, he claimed Jews face a “myriad of troubles” as God’s punishment for murdering Jesus.

In “The Expository Treatise Against The Jews”, he declared:

“Now, then, incline your ear to me, and hear my words, and give heed, you Jew. Many a time do you boast yourself, in that you condemned Jesus of Nazareth to death”.

In 235, Saint Hippolytus was arrested and executed by the Roman Emperor Maximinus Thrax. He is honored as a martyr for the Catholic faith.
